Abstract

1) X-ray

The fast waves of inventions and modifications of the high tech equipments in the last century con- verted the plane images into 2-dimensions and three-dimension ones. The appearances of the different multimedia facilities, as well as the preva- lence of new pet animal species in the markets such as ostriches, Guinea pigs, hamsters, turtles, ..etc necessitate another and new conception in the morphology and anatomy teaching fields. To reach the gross anatomy tutorial of the interna- tional level we have to follow the same steps and use the same tools and means used all over the world.

What is X-ray?

X-ray is the most commonly performed diagnos- tic method of examination. Approximately half of all x-rays obtained in medical institutions are chest x- rays. An x-ray is usually done for the evaluation of lungs, heart and chest wall. Pneumonia, heart fail- ure, emphysema, lung cancer and other medical conditions (fractures, lameness, swellings, swal- lowed foreign bodies ..etc) can be diagnosed or suspected on an x-ray image.

This proposal in the field of Veterinary Anatomy and Embryology may be a step on the way of de- veloping the other fields of specialization in the Veterinary Medicine Profession . The developing of veterinary tutorial also matches the new global demand of accreditation and quality control pro- grams adopted now in all our Universities and in

other

countries

all

over

the

world.
